Do you miss the card catalog?

The card catalog has been replaced by the Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) in most every library. However, if you really miss seeing those small, typed cards with the name of your favorite book, you can make your own catalog card with the Card Catalog Generator (which is how I made the card above).

Author Janet Lynn Mitchell to Speak

Author Janet Lynn Mitchell will be sharing her own personal story of determination, courage, and faith as a victim of medical malpractice on Tuesday, May 27th, 2008 at 6:30pm in the Library's auditorium. Her newest book, Taking a Stand, recounts the events following a botched surgery in which Janet lost the use of her legs. Ten surgeries and fifteen years later, she was shocked to learn that her unfortunate surgical outcome was due to medical negligence and concealment. Janet has since become the voice for otheres who have suffered medical malpractice, and new California laws have been unanimously passed as a result of her story.

Books will be available for purchase and can be signed by the author. Refreshments will be served. For more information, please call the Library at 714/826-4100 x 125.
